Hello, I am Mrs. Barnard! Thank you for visiting my web site. This page is dedicated to letting you know all about me and the Barnard Bunch!

My family moved to Pickens County in 2000. My husband, Tim, and I have been married for 34 years. We have been blessed with a beautiful family and a terrific dog! We love spending time with our family and beautiful grandchildren. My husband Tim is a pipeline technician and loves to golf whenever he gets a chance. I love to travel and my passions are learning about God's Word at my church Revolution, going on mission trips with Jasper First Baptist, and taking trips to the beach every chance I get.

Our oldest son, Tim, lives with his family in Ball Ground. Tim graduated from Kennesaw State University and works as a pipeline controller. His wife, Alisha, stays busy with her job and taking care of their two daughters. Blakely turned eight years old this summer and is very excited about going to second grade. Lydia turns four in December and loves trying out new things.

Bradley lives with his family in Jasper. Bradley graduated from the University of Georgia; he teaches at PHS and coaches girls' basketball and softball.  Chelsea graduated from Kennesaw State University with a nursing degree. She works at Cobb Hospital in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. They have a beautiful son, baby Mack, who will his first birthday in October.

Kayla, lives with her husband, Stephen, in Ball Ground. She graduated from Kennesaw State University with her teaching degree. She is a kindergarten teacher at Jasper First Baptist Church. Kayla also teaches dance at Get to the Pointe studio in Jasper. When she is not in the classroom - she is dancing! Stephen works as a pipeline controller. They are always busy planning their next exciting vacation.

Craig graduated from Pickens High School in 2016 and attends Chatt Tech where he is working on a welding degree. He lives in Jasper. When he's not working or at school, he loves to hang out and play his video games.

Farrah graduate from Pickens High School in 2017. She is in the Air Force. She is currently stationed in Tuscon, Arizona at Davis-Monthan AFB. She works in Air Traffic Management. She took her horse to Arizona with her, so when she is not at work or climbing the mountains, she is riding.

Emma is 11 years old. She is called a Peke-pooh. Her mother was a poodle, and her father was a Pekingese. She is small, fluffy, and white. She goes everywhere with us and loves being around people. We haven't told her this, but she is just a dog. Shhhhhh!

That is the Barnard Bunch!
